SOURCE: Does it harm a Ryobi 18v lithium battery to leave on Charger?

Lithium-Ion batteries require careful charging and temperature monitoring while in the charger. Ryobi's Charging station monitors many functions and shuts off when the battery has gone through a complete charge. This is indicated by a steady Green light. Once the Charge indicator is a steady green the charger stops charging. With any battery It will slowly discharge and I don’t think the Ryobi will maintain a battery that is never removed. For example, if after a complete charge cycle if the battery was left there for 2 years and then you went to use it, it would likely be completely discharged. However if the battery charger is unplugged then plugged back in a new charge sequence would start. I lose power at my house about every 6 months or so. Once power is restored a new cycle would start and the charging cycle begins again.
Hope this helps and have a great day.

SOURCE: can you charge ryobi lithium batteries in a

NO! Never charge lithium batteries in a charger designed for nickle based batteries like the NiHi your old charger was meant for. Ryobi did design the new Lithium charger to be backwards compatible so you can charge your older 18V NiHi batteries in the Lithium 18V charger.
Also note, NEVER miss-match the voltage, for example, make sure you are not trying to charge 12V batteries in an 18V charger unless the manufacturer has specifically stated that the charger is capable of multiple voltages.

SOURCE: porter cable 18 v lithium

How old is the battery and do you store it in the cold. Cold is no good for the batterys but if its flashing that its trying to change and the problem may be with the charger if there not more then 3or 4 years old and were not left in cold conditions and the lithium battery haven't been out for much longer then that. Ihave the same gun and for a year its worked vary well with the 7 inch saw and i use them a lot.

Will the P110 charger charge a lithium ion battery


No, the P110, 18V NiCad battery charger, will not charge a 18V lithium ion battery. You need one of the dual-chemistry chargers. If you have the Ryobi ONE+ batteries, you can get the P117 charger ($30) or a charger with an extra battery (P126) from a store like Home Depot. A 6 battery charger and a 12V in-car charger are also available.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I just bought the Lithium - ion batteries for replacement for my 18.0 volt ni-cad battery. when I put it (ion battery) in the charger (ni-cad charger) no lights come on. what's up?


Lithium Ion batteries don't charge the same way ni-cads or ni-mh do. You need a lithium ion specific charger to charge them. (Some chargers do multiple types.)

DEWALT DW938 18VOLT CORDLESS SAWZALL can it use Lithium Batteries


As long as the voltage of the battery is the same as the tool, the tool won't mind if the power is coming from a NiCd or lithium battery. You do have to have a charger that works with lithium batteries to charge them up. Chargers that can charge lithium batteries can also charge NiCd and NMH batteies. NiCd chargers are not always programmed to detect when lithium batteries are full and may continue to charge them to the point of melting or starting on fire.

What Ryobi batteries p103 or p104 will a battery charger that came with my p100 batteries charge? Or will the charger work with these batteries?


If you have a P100 NiCad battery, the charger for that will not charge the new Lithium Ion P103 or P104 batteries. You need a specialised Ryobi Lithium Ion battery charger like this one

Can you charge a 18v lithium battery in a nicd charger?


Do not try this since the charging circuit for lithium batteries are different than nicad! Improper charging of lithum batteries can cause a fire.

Will a nicd charger work to charge lithium-ion batteries?


no, I would not try this. You can charge a nicd battery on a lithium-ion charger but not the other way around.

Recently bought Craftsman Lithium battery & charger that failed.


Sounds like your charger is only for NiCad batteries. With most brands, the new Lithium chargers will also charge the old NiCads, but the old NiCad chargers will not charge the new Lithium batteries. You will be very happy with the lithiums once you are able to fix the problem. As for Craftsman, buy Craftsman hand tools such as wrenches and sockets but I'd look elsewhere for battery powered tools.
